Uber and Lyft to cease operations in Minneapolis because people have to be paid the local minimum wage

Uber and Lyft are sunsetting in Minneapolis according to the company. The decision comes after the area’s City Council overrode a major key decision.

The Lowdown

According to reports, come 1 May people in Minneapolis will no longer have Uber or Lyft. The decision comes after the local city council voted 10-3 in favor of overriding a veto that now allows drivers to be paid $15.57 hour h/r.

Both companies claimed in statements that the vote was flawed and didn’t take into account all necessary circumstances. Similar minimum wage laws have begun popping up across America.
